Tashkent : Uzbekistan's aviation market is being transformed as the nation adopts new liberal policies and starts to focus more on tourism.

Uzbekistan has been drastically underserved by aviation for years, and is poised for rapid passenger growth, benefitting the economy, its flag carrier and several foreign airlines.

Uzbekistan is the largest country in Central Asia, with a population of 32 million, but has a relatively small aviation market, given its size.

In 2017, there were only 3.7 million international seats to and from Uzbekistan, and less than one million domestic seats, accor-ding to CAPA and OAG data.
